    The Wedding Date - 02/04/05


    From Hollywood.com

    The Wedding Date
    Release Date: 2/4/2005 Romantic Comedy Rated: PG-13 Runtime: 1 hr 30 mins


    Kat Ellis is looking for the right man. NOW. The position comes with a few requirements: willingness to travel, keen social skills, good looks, suave demeanor, sharp mind--and a tux. The qualified candidate should also have the ability to make ex-boyfriends jealous, to turn heads whenever entering a room and to reduce any woman within eye-and earshot to a week-kneed, besotted admirer. Kat wouldn’t be so urgently in need were in not for her spoiled half sister’s wedding where the best man happens to be Kat’s handsome ex-boyfriend. What’s worse, the currently single Kat has to schlep all the way from New York to London, where her wildly dysfunctional family lives. And since the wedding is happening next week, Kat does what any enterprising single woman would do--she hires a professional. So what if her solution crosses a few morally dubious lines plus costs her a tidy six thousand bucks which she’ll have to drain from her 401K? And so what if her escort happens to be--well, an escort? Lucky for her that her hiring skills are pitch-perfect and she zeroes in on smooth heart-stopper Nick Mercer, one of New York’s better known and in-demand professional male escorts. Once in England, the insightful and charismatic Nick--part actor/part shrink/part bon vivant--helps Kat navigate the choppy waters of her screwy family and caddish old flame Jeffrey and convinces everyone he meets that he and Kate are an item. As Nick charms Kat’s parents, Bunny and Victor Ellis, her self-absorbed half sister Amy, Amy’s fiancée Edward, as well as every living, breathing woman within a 100-kilometer radius, Kat too finds herself feeling things she’s never felt before. For Kat, what begins as merely a face-saving ruse with a dashing guy-for-hire quickly starts to become more than she ever expected.

    She doesn't want anything, right?
    From the previews I've seen, this looks like a cute movie. Dermot Mulroney's face isn't that 'pretty' to me, but he does have a certain charm to him. It doesn't hurt that he's got a killer bod, either.

    I might check it out this weekend.

    It does look cute. There haven't been a lot of light, romantic comedies lately. Debra Messing is one of those actresses that has a natural charm and likability about her, which is a plus.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Okay guys... I just got back from seeing a matinee of this movie and, I must say, it is absolutely adorable!

    It is definitely a light, romantic comedy.. and there is nothing *new* in it... so go in there expecting a cute, cheesy love story and you're going to be very happy.

    And yes, Wolf, Dermot Mulroney has a HOT bod!

    I'm really excited for this movie. What was the last Romantic Comedy - Shall we Dance? And that was a long time ago, not to mention pretty heavy for what I expected to be 'The Wedding Planner meets Chicago'. This movie seems very My Best Friend's Wedding meets Pretty Woman. Which is a good thing, IMO.

    Still, I may have to wait until I've seen Aishwarya Rai melt the screen in 'Bride and Prejudice' so I can enjoy it as my RC fix.

    He didn't show off the bod in "My Bestfriend's Wedding" so I'm quite curious to know how hot is he.

    I hope this comes out soon here, but it is unlikely to make it by Valentine week. I'd love to watch this in the cinema on such a day.

    I went to see this move this past weekend, and it's truly a darling movie. Especially, since the chemistry between Debra and Dermot worked really well. Debra Messing could be the next Julia Roberts. Well maybe better, because I find Debra a lot more likeable and funny than Julia.

    Dermot shows off his 'fresh from the oven' buns as one the the characters puts it. Woo-hoo!

    I grew to love Debra Messing in Will and Grace, so I'm totally looking forward to watching this move. This is a really cute movie saw the movie preview of it and loved it !! .. It does seems kind of The Wedding Plannerish one of my favourites hopefully better.

    I saw it this weekend...Dermot is definitely the new object of my infatuation affection.

    I loved the part where he was talking close to her face...I would have traded places with her in a heart beat.
